We were pleased to have Jacques Nimki give the second talk in the space. We had a good turn-out on a cold night and the technical stuff all worked. Good to hear Jacque’s experiences of working with fabrica, Brighton, having shown there myself many years ago.
Good comments from our evaluation forms, finding the talk useful, fascinating,interesting and informative, also good to hear the artist’s particular experiences. So we are chuffed that he will be running a masterclass (on colour I believe) in January.

The feedback about our Project Space itself is also useful. Number one improvement is definitely some funds to buy more external lighting – the countryside can get very dark and muddy. We were delighted to hear praise for our reclaimed pink, spongy seats though.
The Project Space Library bursts into life!
Isabel Vasseur had brought along some publications connected to a handful of projects she has organised, but ran out of time before the audience could browse. Kindly, Isabel donated several of the books to the brand new, about to exist Queen of Hungary Project Space resource library. The idea is that we build up a literary resource connected with and referring to all our guest speakers, whether it be exhibition catalogues or simply texts that currently inspre them. Anyone using the Project Space can then browse in a quiet moment or when in need of inspiration themselves.
The Project Soace is being equipped with solar panels, with scaffolding and ladders adding another layer of utility to the architectural style of the space.
I’ve been avoiding installing Dreamweaver, because that means I will have to begin the website. But yesterday morning I made a start and took the disc out of the box. I haven’t used the programme for 18 months and not ever this version. I know it’s just a case of getting used to the programme again and putting vast slices of time aside in which to make lots of mistakes and get in a muddle.
Hmm, what I ended up doing was playing around in Photoshop to make a logo, which was a lot quicker and more fun.
By the way, the sign does still look like that as the vinyl lettering has only just arrived.
